You may or may not be aware of this case so let me start with a brief recap:
Remy Couture is a special effects artist here in my hometown of Montreal. His speciality is crime and (mostly) gore. Truth be told, he is really, really good at it. So good that he was recently accused of “producing and distributing obscene material” an offense that is usually reserved for “true” events that have been filmed and distributed (such is the case of alleged killer Rocco Magnotta.)
Now, bear with me.
Remy Couture, who has worked on many big budget films, such as Death Race and The Mummy 3, self-produced, filmed, and distributed his own movie titled Inner Depravity. It is a movie for which he also made the special effects: the blood, the gore, the decay. He even acted in it. That was a few years ago and it was intended to be a portfolio piece.
On many accounts, the scenario appeared to be unoriginal. A deranged serial killer kidnaps, tortures, rapes, and kills young women in unsavoury ways that will undoubtedly land him in special hell. (Yes, I’ve been watching Firefly again!)
